Town clear relegation by nine points after winning season's last three games May 8, 2023

Town's last game of the season was at homeHuddersfield Town showed that they had little to worry about in what might have been an end-of-season relegation contest with Reading on the May 8 Bank Holiday Monday.

The Terriers secured a 2-0 win against the side that beat them 3-1 back in October.

Town had made sure that their future did not depend on the very last match of the seaon with a giant-killing 1-0 win against promoted Sheffield United on the previous Thursday night. That kept the Terriers in the Championship next season and made sure Reading were already relegated before the Bank Holiday Monday game at the John Smith's Stadium. Reading followed Blackpool and Wigan in the relegation places.

In a match with no pressure, Town secured their 2-0 win, their third consecutive victory, with goals from Josh Koroma early in the second half and Joseph Hungbo after 84 minutes.

The result meant Town ended the season in 18th place in the Championship, nine points and four places above Reading — a reasonably respectable effort in a season of dipping into the relegation places on a number of occasions and with the threat of relegation still looming until the penultimate match.

Town fans had much to celebrate at the last match after the team were turned around by the Terrier's third manager of the season, a return to the club in February of experienced veteran Neil Warnock.
